PASSAGES





"A marriage between painting and photography, printmaking and mixed media -- this is the kind of art I want to explore," explains art guru Rosscapili, in description of his 37th one man exhibition. Titled "Passages," the exhibition showcases some 30 paintings, photographs and mixed media works at FORUM Robinsons beginning May 13, 2010.

The seamless transition of one art form to another over decades of continuing artistic evolution shines through with every "Passages" piece. Energetic brushwork leaps, dances or surges across photographs of the human figure as though images from the artist's dreams or subconscious were somehow transferred and given tangible form on canvas. Though many of the human figures are in still poses, each work as a whole seems to move like a film noir or music video montage -- sometimes flowing like a prima to Prokofiev or frenetically like stop-motion animation to staccato.

Rosscapili sees "Passages" as a summary of a career that has established him as a master of one art form after another. Simultaneously maintaining strongholds in previously conquered territory, this veteran visual artist is now a sought-after signature in not one but four different art forms. Starting out as an award-winning painter in the early 70's, he fell in love with photography before the decade's end. After becoming a professional shutterbug and adding photography prizes to his trophy cases, the 80's saw him add works in traditional etching to his portfolio as he worked with the Philippine Association of Printmakers.

As his paintings moved into the realm of abstraction in the 90's, it was then that Rosscapili began to pursue digital artmaking. Today, he says, "I no longer put a boundary... It doesn't matter if I'm doing painting, traditional print, photography or digital printing… I end up combining them all during one thought process, creating my own art which doesn't really fit into any single definition of a particular art medium." A look at Rosscapili's work in the first decade of the new millenium suggests that his art will continue to develop in fresh and exciting ways as he melds his different media. He sees the creative process as an uninterrupted passage or voyage where "I can't tell if I've already arrived at my destination.”

"Passages" is open to the public until May 31, 2010 at FORUM Robinsons on Pioneer Street corner EDSA in Mandaluyong City. Mall hours are from 10am to 9pm daily.
